Attendance was at a record high with 20 participants and two guests.
Interest in membership continues to grow with the Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Company (KUFPEC) welcomed into membership by HITS Project Director Danny Constantinis. Meanwhile, Brazilian operator Petrobras have requested membership as has service provider Oceaneering International Services.
A powerful agenda examining both visual inspection methodologies and remote inspection techniques consumed the day, with much debate and endorsement of the JIP reports prepared for the meeting.
